Sonnen joins cast of UFC Tonight


Chael Sonnen announces to Kenny Florian that he’s joining the staff of UFC Tonight beginning January 29: “I was offered 60 MINUTES, THE TODAY SHOW, THE TONIGHT SHOW, they even said they would change the name to THE Chael Sonnen SHOW if I signed onto any of those sinking ships. THE X FACTOR said I could judge and compete at the same time, but I signed on the only dotted line that is important. I am going to join you in two weeks on January 29 on FUEL TV for UFC TONIGHT.

I am going to bring the wisdom and the wits and we are going to sit side-by-side. You are going to be with the often-imitated, never-duplicated, the C to the H to the A to the E to the L on UFC TONIGHT.”

Seems like he's on the show most of the time already anyway, so why's this such big news?The real news here is whether he is replacing Kenny so he can start preparing for his comeback?

Sonnen has been fighting since 1997, or 2002 as a pro. He is very talented and one of the (second? third?) best fighters in the world at his weight class. He cannot work as a realtor anymore due to his money laundering conviction. So he needs to be smart and really work for Zuffa's interests. I think after the Jon Jones fight, he'll get some confidence building fights, and he can be thrown back up there as a top contender. Good luck to him and congrats on the new gig.

yep this is a great long term exit strategy... it seems even chael knows he's gonna get his shit pushed in by Jones so he's already begun targeting his next paycheck by trying to pick a fight against rampage.

Least he'll have somewhere to go after Jones embarrasses him.
